BEST NEW INDIE POP: DATABOY - TOP OF MY LUNGS
DATABOY’s “Top Of My Lungs” is an uplifting reminder of warmer times.
L.A. duo DATABOY have been synonymous with summertime, following MTV Buzzworthy tagging the duo as the “Official Labor Day Anthem” with their remix of “We Can’t Stop Summertime Sadness.” “Summertime Sadness” laced the balmy tropical summertime breeze with a whiff of introspection, like the first chill winds of autumn in late August. Now, they’re doing the same thing, but in reverse with “Top Of My Lungs.”
“Top Of My Lungs” is an optimistic, uplifting club pop ballad, not dissimilar to last year’s unstoppable “Can’t Stop This Feeling” juggernaut by Justin Timberlake. While “Can’t Stop This Feeling” threatened to riddle anyone over the age of 6 into immediate Type III Diabetes and cavities, “Top Of My Lungs” feels less manic and more genuinely optimistic.

The L.A. duo have every reason to be feeling on top of the world, with “Top Of My Lungs.” DATABOY has already racked up Top 10 club hits in the UK with “Good Girlfriend” and “Horizon,” and they’ve not yet released a proper LP. “Top Of My Lungs” looks to be another notch in DATABOY’s belt, winning the John Lennon songwriting challenge and racking up over 225 million streams.
